When you expand your heart/mind and free it,
When your Qi is magnanimous and vast,
When your form is calm and unchanging :
You can maintain Oneness and reject the ten thousand trivialities,
You see profit and are not tempted,
You see trouble and are not frightened.
You are magnanimous, relaxed, and kind*;
When alone, you are happy with your self.
This is called cloud-like Qi –
Your intent and behavior resemble that of heaven.
